Knitted fabric Top with Stripes

Even if it's not snow outside, I wanna make a Snowman...


I wanted a top to wear together with my Skirt and stripes are always nice :) 
This is a knitted cotton fabric and I have used the same wool jersey 
for the cuffs and neckline as for the skirt.
It's a very easy project, and it's based on a pattern from Burda 04/2009. 
 I've made another Top of the same pattern earlier.

A-Line Dress with a Twist :)



I got some new books for X-mas;
Transformational Reconstruction by Shingo Sato.
This is one of his techniques which I had to try :)



The dress is based on the A-Line pattern, but I omitted the pleats in front.
Since I wanted long sleeves, I chose transparent net and gather them 
and made cuffs of the same jersey as for the neck and waist.
I only lined the top since the fabric is heavyweight jersey.
To make it "pop" I decorated the top with different buttons I found in my stash :)
